medicare plans that may be right for you. call now. ♪ >>> tensions rise in the middle east as israel trades fire with its neighbors. overnight israel's military says its air strikes hit key palestinian targets in the gaza strip, including what is described as a terror tunnel and a weapons storage facility. in three straight days of fighting, six palestinians have been killed, and another 30 wounded. according to the israeli military, more than 110 rockets hit southern israel injuring at least four civilians. today in northern israel israeli military sources report hitting syrian targets after two days of cross-border fire. officials say its retaliation for mortar shells that hit near a military post in golan heights. this marks the first time israel has fired on syria since 1973. cnn senior international correspondent sarah is joining us from jerusalem to talk a little bit about all of this that's taking place, and you had a chance, an exclusive, to sit down with israel's president simon peres to talk about what is taking place there. it is somewhat alarming, the escalating violence. does h
you what kind of concern is it that the egyptians have now pulled their ambassador from israel? are you concerned about your other neighbors who themselves are suffering through some extraordinarily tough times right now -- syria, lebanon, jordan? >> unfortunately, we don't have an ambassador here, and i appreciate the presence of egyptian as well as -- but we cannot argue if he wants to call it's unfortunate that the egyptian ambassador had to go, so we will see, but that should not be a reason to stop any kind of -- that we have to face. >> israeli defense minister ehud barack joining us live from tel aviv. do stay safe, and we wish the best for not only the people of israel, but the palestinians, and we hope that you can somehow come to some kind of a consensus to stop this violence between your two parties. thank you for being with us and for answering. our apologies for the difficult connection, but we have been struggling throughout the hour to make that connection with the defense minister, and now we know why. the air raids going in israel. particularly in tel aviv. tha
-scale mideast war. israel is targeting hamas sites in gaza with air strikes, while militants fire rockets across the border into southern israel. the tipping point for this new violence was israel's assassination of the top hamas military commander. brings us right to sara sidner. she's live for us in gaza city. sara, good morning. >> good morning. yes, we've been seeing air strikes again and again here in gaza city. we've seen more than a dozen air strikes since we've been here, which is a few hours. on the other side of the border, we've been seeing rockets coming in. we're talking about dozens of rockets since the targeted killing of ahmed al jabari, the head of hamas' military wing. now, what we have also seen in the streets are thousands upon thousands of people who participated in the funeral for al jabari. he's not only the head of the military, he was not only a man, a commander of the military, but a man who was one of the founders of hamas, a symbolic member of hamas. so many, many people out to commemorate his death. we saw shooting in the streets, as you see a lot of times during fun
in the region. her trip comes as a senior hamas official says no cease-fire deal with israel is in place but an agreement is close. how close is a cease-fire, if at all? >> lori, close doesn't really count very often at these kinds of deals. either you got a deal or you don't, and right now there is no confirmation from anyone officially that there is a deal. everyone says they are very close, but still in the past couple of hours, we've seen an almost unprecedented amount of artillery fire and then rocket fire coming back from the gaza strip that hasn't happened since this conflict began. in some ways that's a bad sign obviously it is more fire. in some ways it is a good sign because typically before there is a cease-fire deal, you often times get everyone trying to fire as much as they possibly can right up until the last minute. and that may be the case. so far today in israel, at least 20 people injured, an additional one person killed bringing the death total here in israel to four. over on the palestinian side more than 100 people killed as we head into the night hours to figure ou
-fire between israel and hamas. doesn't even settle with the truce and then morsi announces this decree essentially a huge power grab. what is the significance? >> reporter: well, suzanne, the significance is until a parliament is formed here in egypt, until a constitution is drafted, he is the most powerful man in egypt, and, technically, he can do whatever he wants without any apparent oversight. that's why he is being called egypt's new dictator. that's why you have thousands of protests taking place behind us in tahrir square. the protesters represent the opposing factions, the liberals, the secularists, women's rights groups, the youth groups. essentially, their position is that we're not going to talk to mr. morsi until he rescinds his decrees, and we spoke to one of his top advisors today, and he said he'll consider that, but first there needs to be a dialogue. let's take a listen to the advisor. >> what kind of concessions are you willing to make? >> this decision is up to the president. not for us. >> is it possible -- is it possible -- >> we are ready for our dialogue. >> are

that the first thing all jewish voters look at is where a candidate stand on israel, that is making a certain narrow view of the jewish people that i find to be a, not true and b, it makes me angry. >> when i went to israel -- >> the obama campaign is taking the republican challenge seriously, firing back with an ad focused on israel. >> our bond with israel will be unbreakable. >> the ko chairman ofco-chairma called florida democrats for romney says it's absolutely not all about israel. >> i think we need to look at this as a business and put somebody in there that can run this country and bring pack the jobs. >> four years ago, obama won 78% of the jewish vote. political scientists say the attacks could cost the president as much as 5% of that support. the quift of about 25,000 votes. in a close election, perhaps the difference, now, jewish people make up about 3.5% of the state's residents, but 8% of the voters. >> good report. thanks very much. >> join us and the entire cnn team for election night in america. our continuous live coverage begins at 6:00 p.m. eastern tuesday night. we'll be

type of individual who is ready to stand very, very firmly by u.s. allies, particularly israel. and someone who is very different by nature with, compared with president obama. melissa: so what do you think he would do on day one that would stop iran in its tracks? >> he has himself said that he is ready to tough inch the sanctions which are already in place. and, i also believe that it would send sufficient signals to tehran they need to capitulate their nuclear program. they have absolutely no opportunity to once more use the delaying tactics to give some kind of negotiations in order to gain time. let's not forget. right now president obama's government is engaged in secret talks with iran. all that sends the wrong signals to the regime in tehran because they believe they can gain time having this kind of negotiations. melissa: i hear you but, say mitt romney were elected and came in with an iron fist. wouldn't that cause them to accelerate the timeline that we better do this quick and because the u.s. is not messing around and they get to the bomb quicker? >> regime has use
, which is important for israel and important for that region. there is a huge amount of work to be done because both president obama and mitt romney had basically said and have carved out the position that president assad must go. but they are doing nothing, certainly not u.s. administration has done nothing to make sure that that happens. and so that could leave the u.s. a little bit exposed to charges of weakness. and today his closest pal if you like, british prime minister david cameron, who was the first to congratulate president obama, said that he really wants to talk to, quote, barack, to figure out how to solve the syrian crisis. >> a lot to come. thanks, christiane. president obama might have won re-election last night but he lost the white house by 20 points. we're going to talk about the changing face of america. what it means for the future of both parties. >> it doesn't matter whether you're black or white or hispanic or asian or native american or young or old or rich or poor, abled, disabled, gay or straight, you can make it here in america if you are willing to try.
